Market Hours

There are four major trading sessions that ensure the market is open 24 hours a day.

  • London: 8 AM-5 PM GMT
  • New York: 1 PM-10 PM GMT
  • Sydney: 10 PM-7 AM GMT
  • Tokyo: 12 AM-9 AM GMT

This ensures investors can trade round the clock.

Best Trading Times

Deciding on the best time to trade will depend on your strategy and preferred financial instruments. You can place trades anytime you wish to as long as the market is open. Nonetheless, the biggest market activity usually happens when two trading sessions overlap. Investors particularly watch out for the period of 1 PM-5 PM GMT when two of the biggest trading markets (London and New York) are both open.

UM Capitals Online Trading
